What do you get when you combine a ₪10.90 clothing bin with a reliable dose of modern society?
Classic sexism, in newborn flavor! Here are just a few of the options I noticed at a clothing shop yesterday:
1. Money money money. And Daddy.
Nothing is more classic and sexist and just plain gross than “Daddy, buy me more!” with a picture of a pink credit card being swiped.
Or maybe she means, ‘buy me more college credit! I want to triple major!!’
2. Crushing on your doctor
I was pleased to see this one come in both blue and pink… so the baby boys can also have the hots for their (male, duh) doctors!
3. Promise we’ll keep this one going well into the 23rd century.
In my future book titled, Seriously? WHY Are We Still Perpetuating This? I will explore the reasons why we are making our baby boys into a. sex obsessed b. pedophiles c. who are oddly ahead of their age when it comes to interests.
Sex up those baby boys, parents!
Alternatively – inspired future gynecologist?
4. Ok nothing to do with gender, just weird.
A little boy who is so excited for shabbat to go out. A universal sentiment. I actually almost bought that one.
5. Don’t get me wrong, I love puns…
Puns are always funny.
But still, cats + flirting can only mean this girl has one sure thing in her future. Unless I’m wrong and she will actually turn out a writer, maybe a B+ Huffington Post columnist.
And then I looked up from that onesie bin and realized there were SHELVES of this stuff…
And held my child a little closer before giving up on life.
P.S. Lest you worry your baby will grow out of her newborn onesie too soon, behold in the girls’ section:
Which, admittedly, all I could think when reading that was, then you have really wonky boobs.
